Exceptional Care for Mental Health and Behavioral Disorders

We focus on adolescents and young adults who need more support than typical outpatient treatment, but don’t need the immersive treatment environment of inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. Our structured step-down process ensures a seamless continuity of care from our intensive outpatient programs (IOP) to our transitional outpatient programs.

We can help change that. Effective, evidence-based treatment delivered in a way that helps teens and young adults is life-changing. We can get you back on track, living life on your terms.

Consequences of Untreated Mental Health Disorders:

What happens if I don’t get help?

When a mental health or behavioral disorder goes untreated, the consequences can be severe. With no treatment at all, potential outcomes include:

  • Withdrawal from friends, family, and favorite activities
  • Impaired performance and achievement at school and work
  • Turbulent relationships with friends and peers
  • Problems with family, including parents and siblings
  • Unstable romantic partnerships
  • Alcohol or drug use escalating to addiction/disordered use
  • Risky behavior: driving, sex, intoxicants, thrill-seeking
  • Escalating symptom severity leading to suicidality or self-harm

Consequences of Treatment:

What happens if I get help?

Treatment outcomes and progress vary by the individual. Success depends on several factors, starting with how you define success for you and your life. In most cases, patients with a clinical mental health or behavioral disorder who engage in evidence-based treatment provided by experience, skilled professionals experience:

  • Decreased symptom frequency
  • Decreased symptom severity
  • Improved school and work performance
  • Improved family and peer relationships
  • Increased overall wellbeing
  • Increased social functioning
  • Increased happiness, joy, and life fulfillment

At BACA, we get it:

Behind the attitude and acting out, there’s a person seeking connection.

Our job is to find a way to understand what they’re going through, allow them to see that we see what they’re going through, and wait for them to teach us how to help them.  We know that when we’re patient, and lead with kindness and understanding, they’ll open up on their own time and in their own way. That’s how real healing starts: patient and provider form a collaborative partnership, agree on goals, and work together to meet those goals.
